The Drinks Are Served With a Straw At The Mellifera Saloon

I call one of my bee watering stations the "Mellifera Saloon."  This season, I'm floating some sections of last summer's sunflower stalks as safe places for the bees to land regardless of the depth of the water.

They particularly like to draw up water from the exposed end of one particular stalk (the other end of it is submerged so it provides water at the exposed end through capillary action).  I find this curious but cannot explain it.
